It's party night. You've got the Doritos, vol-au-vents and fizzy pop at the ready, with Karaoke on stand-by for later.

You've got everything needed to ensure your party goes off with a bang... or have you?

This Russian roulette party game could be the thing needed to ensure a memorable night.

Don't worry, rather than actual bullets it uses water filled balloons (as you might have guessed from the picture), so the penalty for losing is a good soaking, instead of certain death.

Distributed in the UK by Funtime Gifts, the party roulette toy works just like a real revolver with one bullet loaded in the chamber, so there's a one in six chance of getting wet.

 Good clean fun, or bad taste?

One user on Amazon.com writes: "I can see this going bad, real bad. Teach your kids to put a fake gun to their head and pull the trigger. It doesn't matter what it's loaded with, it's the action involved. Holy smokes, get a real toy. Don't buy it. This has to be worst idea ever.
Intelligent factor Zero."
